Iphoto update 6.0.5

I cannot install the latest update on my Imac G4, system 10.4.8. I have been trying for months now. I currently have iPhoto 6.0.4 (305). I have turned off all Sleep functions. Please help.

rotorboss:
Another thing to consider is: did you remove any of the iPhoto pkg files from the HD/Library/Recieipts folder? For the 6.0.5 updater to work you must have 6.0.4 (which you say you do) on the HD but also you must have a file titled iPhoto_604.pkg in the Receipts folder for the updater to determine that you had the proper version to update. If you don't have that file in there, I suggest you download and rerun the 6.0.4 updater. You can get it at the Downloads page from the button at the top of this page.
Do you Twango?
TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
I've written an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.

    Hi,
    I scoured the web looking everywhere for a solution to this.
    Exit Code 15
    OSX 8.5 with [email protected] DVD media for CS6
    I followed instructions to run 3rd party cleaner software
    I tried the adobe removal tool
    removing all copies of adobe software manually
    installing from a new account, safe mode, plist everything suggested that i found did not work.
    A colleague suggested that removing the below folder would allow the installation:
    /Library/Application Supports/Adobe
    They turned out to be correct, so i am passing this on, because this took far too many hours of my time.
    Cheers,

    You are not going to be able to run your old system from the backup on this old computer as the hardware is incompatible.
    You need to get a new computer or a refurbished one.

  • How do I get my albums and pictures to match correctly? Ever since the last iPhoto update my entire library has been in disarray. i.e. my wedding album have pics from vacation album. Which was not the case before.   MacBook Pro 2010

    Ever since I did the lastest iPhoto update my picture albums have not correctly matched up with the corresponding photos. i.e. my wedding pictures now show up in my vacation album.  The picture thumbnails are not showing me the correct photos.

    I have iPhoto '11 with the lastest software update. I forgot what number it currently is. I am vigalant when it comes to the latest software updates. Yes, I did restore my iPhoto pictures from a backup since I founf out I could not share any of my pics using my apeture library since they were not the orginals. So, after the back-up of iPhoto all my pictures albums and the pics in the album do not match up, even the thumbnails.  I find this quite annoying. All my albums were working and correctly before this update.  As for apeture can I re-master all the photos there masters? so i can just do away with using iPhoto all together?
    Thanks for the quick reply!

  • IPhoto update can't be installed on my MAC ref. "This update is not available for this Apple ID either because it was bought by a different user or the item was refunded or cancelled." this is not possible help?

    Recent upgrade to OS X Yosemite on my MAC and iPhoto update can not  now be installed msg reads, "This update is not available for this Apple ID either because it was bought by a different user or the item was refunded or cancelled." this is not possible help?

    That error message can be misleading. It means, that iPhoto on your Mac is not associated with your Apple ID.
    Either you did not set up  your Mac using the same Apple ID - did someone help with your setup and use a different ID? Perhaps a family member? Or did you let someone borrow your installer disks?
    Or did you not yet "Accept" iPhoto and other iLife apps to your Apple ID? Check the "Purchased" tab of the App Store, if any applications are waiting to be accepted. If you see "Accept" buttons, press them.
    You may  be unable to "Accept" now, if you missed the update to iphoto 9.5.1 on Mavericks. You could try to buy iPhoto, however. If you are lucky, it may show for free.
    Backup your iPhoto library, if you do not have a current backup.
    Uninstall iPhoto by deleting it from the Applications folder, but do not empty the Trash, so you can put it back,if need be.
    Launch the App Store, click the "Store" menu, and sign in with your current AppleID.
    Open the main page "Featured" of the App Store and search for iPhoto.
    If iPhoto is listed as "Free", click the "Free" button to buy it with your current AppleID.
    If it is not showing as free, there is no help but contacting the App Store Support to sort out the AppleID. Use this link: http://www.apple.com/support/mac/app-store/contact/

  • IPhoto update from iLife06 won't open HP Scans. Help?

    I decided to install iLife06 and had instant problems. I have a 2.5 Dual G5 running 10.3.9. and am using an HP 4890 scanner. Prior to installing the iPhoto update as part of iLIfe06, everything worked fine. I would scan a photo and transfer it to iPhoto and open it and work on it and whatever. Now...scans won't open in iPhoto. No matter how I try to sneak the scan into iPhoto, (via Preview, etc.), it won't open, freezes and has to be force quit. Reinstalled HP software to no avail. All the prior scans done on the same HP 4890, that were already in iPhoto, open fine, but new ones....nada. Had issue with iWeb too, not happy with this iLife06...how do I get rid of it, get back the old iPhoto, and back to serenity? If I use the original disks can I just install the old iPhoto?

    Hi redcatres,
    I do not know the answer of why the scans are not opening in iPhoto. Do you scan and save to a folder (not the iPhoto Library folder), then import into iPhoto?
    To get back to iPhoto 5, you would really need a backup of the iPhoto 5 Library folder that has not been updated to version 6 in order to keep your metadata such as comments and keywords, and also all your albums, slideshows, books.
    You can go back to 5 if you do not have a version 5 backup, but you will have to reimport your photos and lose your metadata.
    Steps:
    To reinstall iPhoto 5
    Drag the iPhoto Library folder in the Pictures folder to the desktop and rename it it iPhoto 6 library
    Navigate to /Applications and drag iPhoto to the trash
    Navigate to /Library/Receipts and drag all iPhoto receipts to the trash
    Navigate to ~/Library/Preferences and drag com.apple.iPhoto.plist to the trash.
    Insert your iLife 5 CD/DVD and choose to do a custom install. You will have to keep ongoing through the steps of the install before you get to the screen where you can choose a custom install.
    Install iPhoto.
    Run Software Update and update iPhoto to the latest version of 5
    Put your backup iPhoto 5 library in the Pictures folder and launch iPhoto.
    If you do not have a backup iPhoto 5 library:
    Open the iPhoto 6 library folder on the desktop
    -double click the iPhoto Library folder on the desktop to open it
    -the two main folders you will need to import are the Original folder and the Modified folder (only if you want to import the edited images).
    -the Originals folder has all your originals photos unedited. the Modified folder has all images that you have edited, rotated, cropped, etc.
    -Drag these two folders to the desktop
    -If you want to save the edited image, find it in the roll in the Modified folder and drag it into the roll of the same name in the Originals folder. It will replace the originals and now will be the original.
    -If you don't care to save any edited images, then don't import the Modified folder into iPhoto or don't bother replacing the edited image with the original image like I just described.
    -If you import the Originals folder into iPhoto you will have all your originals in their named rolls.
    -If you import the Originals and Modified folders into iPhoto, you will have all of the being in the originals folder in the finder. The roll with the same name as the other will have a _1 appended to it's name (in the finder)
    -the roll from the originals will be next to the same roll from the Modified folder within iPhoto. You can then delete any of the images from there if you want.
    I know this might sound confusing but it really isn't.
    Get back if any of this sounds like something you might want to do.

  • I just downloaded an iphoto update and when I tried to share my photos was asked for email and password.  I must have typed in the info wrong because I keep getting an error message.   I don't see how to change the info to the correct mistake..

    I too added 2nd apple ID when I tried to get Free app from apple store just to get to NONE on the credit card needed. It said it sent confirmation email to my new apple ID email that I have to confirm. Problem is I can not get to the new apple ID email account.  On my ipad it logs into my original email account and I see no where to log into another email account.  If I go to my laptop, the new apple ID I created does not let me log into email where apple said it was sent to.  It did not send to back up email account either.
    Can I log into 2 email accounts on my ipad where it says mail at bottom?
    Can I have 2 apple ids?
    If I created a 2nd apple id to get to NONE on credit card needed, can't I log into it also on another laptop in gmail?
    (won't let me)
    If I used my original apple id I created when I got my new ipad, it will not let me get free app without credit card, there is no where it says NONE needed. I am too new to apple to start with credit cards etc until I get use to it.

  • After iPhoto update some photos go black when trying to edit them and am unable to edit those photos

    After iPhoto update some photos go black when trying to edit them and am unable to edit those photos. How do I fix this as this is the latest update?

    If I hold down the Option key while launching iPhoto, I get the option to start a new library. Do I have to import all my thousands of photos into the new library?
    In his original post the poster referenced the following. As to the new Library, see the end.
    There are several possible causes for the Black Screen issue
    1. *Permissions in the Library* : Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild. Include the option to check and repair permissions.
    2. *Minor Database corruption*: Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild.
    3. *A Damaged Photo*: Select one of the affected photos in the iPhoto Window and right click on it. From the resulting menu select 'Show File (or 'Show Original File' if that's available). Will the file open in Preview? If not then the file is damaged. Time to restore from your back up.
    4. *A corrupted iPhoto Cache*: Trash the com.apple.iPhoto folder from HD/Users/Your Name/Library/ Caches...
    5. *A corrupted preference file*: Trash the com.apple.iPhoto.plist file from the HD/Users/ Your Name / library / preferences folder. (Remember you'll need to reset your User options afterwards. These include minor settings like the window colour and so on. Note: If you've moved your library you'll need to point iPhoto at it again.)
    *If none of these help*:
    As a Test:
    Hold down the option (or alt) key key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Create Library'
    Import a few pics into this new, blank library. Is the Problem repeated there?

  • Losing Keychains from iPhoto Update

    Since the iPhoto update yesterday, when I attempt to click on Mobile Me to upload a gallery, I get prompted to keep my current keychains or update them (nothing new). However, when I click to update them (which I usually do), I lose them ALL and I can no longer access any secure sites, including Mobile Me.
    My iMac basically becomes non-functional as far as internet/email/networking/etc. Although, if I re-start my computer, my keychains return but I am once again prompted in iPhoto to update them. If I say no, it will keep asking me.
    Help???

    Andrew:
    First quit iPhoto, delete the iPhoto preference file, com.apple.iPhoto.plist, that resides in your User/Library/Preferences folder, launch iPhoto and try again. If that doesn't jump start your MMe access give the following a try:

    After waiting a day for the rolling restore to happen, I called AppleCare because Apple had sent an email saying my service was back, and it wasn't. I still could send and not receive using Mail.
    Here is what fixed it. Go to MobileMe (terrible name) in System Preferences, log out. Then enter a garbage name and password and try to log in. This apparently clears the MobileMe preferences. Then enter your real UserName and PassWord. For me this was lights on.
    I am left wondering how long ago I could have had email had I known this preference reset scheme.
    Although it's for a Mail problem it will let you flush out the MobileMe preferences and enter your user name and password for a fresh start. See if that will help.
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto (iPhoto.Library for iPhoto 5 and earlier) database file and keep it current.

It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
    I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger or later), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 6 and 7 libraries and Tiger and Leopard. Just put the application in the Dock and click on it whenever you want to backup the dB file. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.
    Note: There's now an Automator backup application for iPhoto 5 that will work with Tiger or Leopard.

  • Iphoto update

    Hi
    I'm not sure why but my computer says it will not accept the new iPhoto update....why is this? Also, I burned a disc of cd's from my friend who had the iphoto update and tried to then upload these into my computer but it said I couldn't becuase I didn't have the latest version..
    what should I do ...thanks

    Hi Jenna,
    What version of iPhoto are you running? To find out, when iPhoto is open, go to the menu bar and click on iPhoto/about iPhoto. iPhoto 2 was the last free version of iPhoto. You now have to purchase the iLife suite which includes iPhoto, iTunes, iMovie, iDVD and Garageband. You probably downloaded the update to version 5 of iPhoto and it will not install unless you have iPhoto 5 already installed on your computer.
    Next, if you want to burn images to view or import into iPhoto from your friends computer, this is what you need to do.
    Creating a CD or DVD to be viewed in Windows or by a photo processing company
    I am thinking that the way you did it was within iPhoto. The disc you get from burning that way, is a mountable iPhoto Library. Meaning if you insert the CD into your computer, it will open iPhoto and mount in the source column for you to view the images.

  • IPhoto update stalled

    I just updated my MacBook to Yosemite and now my iPhoto update is stalled. I can't cancel the update but I don't want to delete the app because all my photos are on it. How can i fix this?

    Why can't you drag the iPhoto appellation to the Trash bin?  You should be able to but will be asked for your Admin password.
    Or try holding down the Command key and then drag the app to the Trash  bin.

  • IPhoto Update Gliche

    I have just downloaded and installed the new Iphoto update, all 1.2gb of it, yet the Mac store still shows it as an update available, even theough the little grey box says that it is already installed.
    Support has told me to clear the Updated Folder in the library, which I have done, but the update still shows as available.
    Anyone else with the same issue or anyone with a solution ?
